Awesome view of the rushing river and falls. There were quite a lot of people there, trail isn't that difficult. Best views you'll see are from bridge 1-5, really isn't worth going further unless you want some excerise and to enjoy the river with less people around. Overall I would suggest going.
There is also a lookout next to the overflow parking lot, I would suggest going there for a view of the valley.

Maligne Canyon is an hike with many views of the river, and of course the waterfall. The trails are well used, and they can be quite busy. Regardless the hike is 100% worth it

I gave this trail five stars based on beauty only. Way too many people. Bus loads. To avoid the crowd go early or during dinner hour when to tour buses are eating a buffet. Definitely worth the hike. Get off the trail and go down to the river in safe areas.

it's gorgeous. It's a bit busy near the canyon but the spur to 6th bridge is very serene as is the 7h return leg in the loop.
